Borderlands 2 or Borderlands GOTY?

I'm wanting to buy one of them but I'm unsure which will give me the longest playtime/enjoyment.

Suggestions?

Co-op or by yourself?

Almost completely solo but I would try out online co-op sometimes.

Borderlands 2 is better solo. BL1... you can make some god-builds that are easier to solo with, but the game's pretty dry without someone to play with.

I haven't played Borderlands 2 yet, but I don't see a reason why you would want to skip the first one. It seems like both games play very much the same, so I'd just start with the GOTY edition of Borderlands 1 and if you end up enjoying it, you can always get the second one (preferably as a GOTY edition as well).
I also think that Borderlands 1 scales very well to a singleplayer experience, which is how I played it. Never felt like I was playing a game strictly designed for co-op.
The DLC that comes with the GOTY edition is pretty good except for "Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot", which is a terrible version of a horde/survival mode - don't even bother with it.

Don't skip Borderlands 1, it has such an amazing and rich story that it... hahahhaha


Can't even finish my sentence!


Borderlands 1 is best with co-op, pretty dry single player.

Borderlands 2 is good single AND co-op.

What makes borderlands 2 better in single player than borderlands 1?

Borderlands 2:
-An amazing cast of characters that make for a great story experience.
-Much better skill trees make every character more unique.
-Better gun diversity(More red text unique firing pattern guns of effect).
-Better secondary quest because of dialogue.
-Better enemy diversity(Loaders,stalkers and goliaths being my favourite).
-Enemies offer great dialogue.
-Handsome Jack


It's just better in every way, the only factor that may annoy you is the legendary loot drop rate.

Is the item drop rate better. In borderlands 1 I had a hard time finding better guns in single player most of the time I would just find garbage.
